BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha Fund Update

Investment news for Financial Advisers and Paraplanners

19 Jan 2016

In 2015 the BlackRock UK Absolute Alpha Fund returned 7.8%* for investors. With the prospect of higher interest rates in the UK and further market volatility, this absolute return strategy offers an attractive way for investors to benefit from share prices moving in both directions.

In their latest Quarterly Conference Call, co-managers Nigel Ridge and Nick Osborne will provide an update on the Fund including:

  • A look at Q4 2015 performance while reflecting on strong absolute returns for 2015 as a whole;
  • current portfolio positioning in view of continued market volatility;
  • A UK market outlook for the year ahead.

At the conclusion of their presentation, callers will have the opportunity to put questions to the speakers.
